the lousy absolute state of the economy, people think that obama -- >> you know as well as i do spending continues to be huge but our tax system isn't competitive and everybody out there worries about that. oh, my god. >> people's optimism about the economy is increasing a little bit. broad spectrum of consumer confidence -- >> i'm going to say one thing about this whole conspiracy theory. i went down to bls and talked to the woman in her cubicle who wrote the announcement, 7.8%. there is not a single political employee in the entire bls right now, not one. i mean this is crazy town to think that it was -- >> when you say people don't trust government, this is the most trustworthy. i mean, there are the inherent problems of economic data which are all science faction, but these are honestly constructed science fiction. >> most people don't understand, you do, obviously, but how this is done. this is a survey of 60,000 households. george, eighth a survey. it last a margin of error. >> about 400,000 jobs it could be. >> the margin is 0.2%. you could have 8% unemployment. >> the survey of e
and seems clear two battles tonight. one is over the state e of the economy right now. obama is going to say that he has made a lot of progress bute basically going to ask for mor. time to finish the job. t the romney camp says this is where their guy is going to be tough on obama's record in the economy over the last four years and he will say barack obama made a lot of promises in 2008 and hasn't kept the promises. they don't worry about their are guy being likeable and say the key is to stay on offense. the other battle over the plans for the next four years where o obama will be tough on romney and say this is a guy who wants to give tax cuts to the wealthc and to voucherrize medicare. romney will say he is the defender of the middle class. t both sides say this could get heated tonight. >> chris, thank you. >> good evening. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs moderating this debate. >> i'm jim lehrer and welcome you to the first of the 2012l presidential debates between president barack obama the democratic nominee and former, massachusetts governor mitt romney the republican nominee. this de
that the obama policies did not help either their personal situation or the economy. majorities of women, men, independents and seniors and small business believe that the obama policies have hurt the economy. this is about policies. it is -- you want me to read your data. i'm saying read our data. >> the reality -- the point is that in boasting about the unemployment number the obama people are making too much out of one pops's number which everybody does but there's a fundamental truth that things are getting better. not as fast as they should by a long shot. maybe a quarter of the way back from the damage that was done by the financial crisis, but we are making our way back. >> when you look at both events, let me ask you to weigh in, how much did the race change this week? >> i think it changed -- i think romney helped himself but i think this is a clarifying event because now the republicans are enthusiastic about romney. while they're enthusiastic about ryan, the winner of this race will have real legitimacy. this is not going to be a thing where they say, well, he really didn't represe
an obama policy that has the economy stuck in neutral. >> they had full charge of the first two years and the policies that this president put into place actually made it worse, including the fact that obamacare is actually, you ask small employers, it's causing them not to hire because of rising health care costs. >> former white house press secretary robert gibbs touched on the the jack welch tweet. >> we wonder what institutions in this country are the perception of institutions are failing because people go on tv and make stuff up. we asked for the evidence and he had none. >> job growth, certainly we're not where we want to be. >> many analysts combed through, attribute decline in unemployment. an increase in part-time work and unable to find full-time jobs and settling for part-time jobs. >> harris: i'm sure they know it's what they add up to underemployment. you had full-time and now part-time a completely different paycheck into your household. we're hearing back and forth with the campaign. the romney campaign's reaction to this. >> keep in mind this deprives the romney campa
at bill clinton he had a democratally controlled congress he got things. president obama got stimulus passed . there are examples, but does that help the economy or better off under one party. >> johnathon is saying something that is fund amam. look ridiculous. this would be a totalitarian government and one party rule all of the time and so they could pass the legislation . get rid of them altogether and have a dictator. congress you have to understand. constitution was drafted by men afraid of government and trying to protect the people from their own government and not giving the government power to do something. but the powers in the constitution are negative to the government so that people will have as johnathon said freedom to do what they want to do. you don't need the other stuff to do that . >> at the same time is it better where we are with the economy now to have one party and at least get something done. it may not be the best thing but something done . >> i think not. i agree with johnathon which is frightening me right now. in britain it is a parlimentary and possible t
better handle the economy? romney, 55%. obama, 43%. then among debate watchers, who would better handle health care? romney, 52%. obama, 47%. the question is that's who won the debate. is it going to move anything in ohio where polls have shown advantage obama? >> candy, can i jump in here? >> yes, sir. it's your turn. >> romney is going to ohio. romney is going to carry ohio. it's going to be a very, very close race, but this race fundamentally changed wednesday night in ohio. i think it did across the country. tremendous energy now, but i think here's where we were going into the debate. people like -- they said i like the guy, i like his family. he is a good person. he is nott doing a very good job. the opponent, then the next question is, is the challenger up to it? is he the person we want? frankly, iffing into wednesday night, people had not answered that second question. romney had not made the sale. i think what you saw wednesday night was the first opportunity that the average person had to see these two candidates head-to-head for an extended period of time, and when they saw
, and that is news. >> it is also import to keep in mind who has been hard hit by the economy. largely younger americans, african-americans, and hispanics. either those who would not vote or are supporting president obama. so i think you have got a pool of swing voters out there who are actually doing better by now in this economy than many people. >> let us talk about entitlement. >> if you are around 60 or older, you do not need to listen any further, but for younger people, we did talk about what changes are occurring. >> if you are 55, you may want to listen. this will affect you. >> this is the debate over congressman ryan's plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. the president says that it needs to be tweaked. medicare, he says, needs some changes. we have been bellyaching about entitlements for years. ryan has a plan to do something about it. what is the problem? >> the problem is, he would, in effect, turn medicare into a voucher program. the president touched on it but did not stay with it. he allowed romney to get away with it. the voucher program would cause people to take a c
on >> alice? >> i agree economy is ryan's strength and foreign policy. it is critical he's able to point out the obama administration believed that strength is a vulnerability as opposed to a weakness. he need toz point that out and we can succeed with strength and everything that happened with libya and inability to come to the truth of it was a terror attack. ryan needs to highlight that and that will resonate with the people. >> we'll an analyze it income week. nit picking but we analyze it i think paul ryan will have a great night. but i think we underestimate joe bide by. the pressure is on him to clean up the strike out in denver joe bidens had to sal vage the team. i think he will surprise people and be better than republicans are prepared for. we'll see and we'll be honest and tell you what happens next week. >> thank you very much. alice and jake to have you here. >> president's campaign and trying to make up by the debate debacle by fighting back with attack ads. frank will tell us when we frank will tell us when we [ male announcer ] citibank's app for ipad makes it easy for anne
numbers came out on friday. are they a game changer in terms of how people perceive the economy? this is "the washington post" front page. certainly not something that the romney team wanted to see. the line graph showing 7.8% unemployment when obama takes office in january 2009. here we are in september of 2012. lowest since he took office. does this change anything? >> sure. i think it was a significant help to the president. imagine it came out at 8.2 following that debate. people would have entered this weekend saying that's close to the end. so i think it's part of the whole process. this campaign will go down to the end, i think. it's going to be one of the most interesting campaigns in american history. and i think you're going to see it go back and forth some over the next week. on the other hand, friday, the international monetary fund said probably no recovery until 2018. and that's a very sobering number. >> robert gibbs, it is particularly weak. you have 40% of those who have been out of work, out of work for six months or longer. this is a weak economic recovery. >>
'm not happy with obama. i'm not happy with the economy. but god, i don't want to have to start over. there's this perception. so that to me is a tricky thing for romney. right romney has got to sort of make the case that we're not going to rip everything out by the roots. which is of course what some in this space do want to have happen. but i'm going to create a better recovery. a faster recovery. so i think that's what the 8% means, right? it means he's got to be more nuanced in that argument. where the president can sit there and make the same case -- do you really want to start over? >> there's another point that for the wealthy, life has been pretty good over the last several years, the stock market has doubled, ceo pay is way up. the long-term unemployed, and those jobs that were lost under the bush administration, that president obama has restored in manufacturing and the like, the key number for them is, who do i trust. to take my long-term unemployment needs, my middle class families' needs, to the next level. so i think that the combination of people just trusting president obama
. >> good morning, it's sunday, october 7th. i'm alisyn camerota. president obama and mitt romney continue to battle over the economy. >> he got a chance to explain his jobs program. and how he's going to create new jobs in america and did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. >> alisyn: well, romney had to say, and the president, we're just 30 days away from the the election. >> peter: and president obama touting his 7.8% unemployment figure and still blaming president bush. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years. >> peter: more on that interesting number, coming up next. >> clayton: take a look at the video, amazing video of a race car driver losing control on a collision course and watch what he end up driving threw, it's a vineyard and hits an electric pole. you think behind the care it looks bad, but we have a cockpit video from inside the car.

be almost 11%. o'malley says that it shows that the economy is finally growing and that -- as opposed to when obama came in and we lost 800,000 a month. we're creating now 114,000 this last month. >> governor o'malley, did he talk about the presidential shellacking in. >> well, he -- you know, the way they do it is say you heard a performance on the part of romney. but i think there's an agreement, i don't think you're going to find many democrats who think that this was obama's finest hour. and i think one of the things that you heard -- that was an interesting preview, when he talked about of course the big vice presidential debate is this thursday. i think biden, and you heard the preview, is going to go after the ryan budget, the budget that ryan proposed over the years that's different from what romney's proposing. for instance $716 billion of romney would restore it to medicare. in ryan's original budget he also took it out, as the president did. i think they're going to try to say the -- the democrats are, you look at the ryan budget and that's what romney will do. >> the vice
is an rapascious candidate and presenting barack obama as the alternative. he took a sledgehammer. they can't run on the economy, on the president's legislative record, people don't like it. now they're going to go straight after his character, suggest he has a credibility issue, call him a liar, say that he's a flip-flopper and that's where they'll go for the rest of the election. >> kim is touching on a really important point, which is fear is such a big part of the obama campaign. i mean, he is trying to gin up fear for people who, you know, you have 23 million people out of work and tell them, by the way, this guy is going to take away any chance for health care? >> when romney comes in and looks like he's a reasonable guy, a competent fellow, he's not scary and talks about his medicare plan in reasonable terms. >> and that's what i mean. >> you blow up the fantasy, the caricature, rather, of how he's been portrayed and i think that helps. >> that's why the debate was so damaging for obama. >> are we going to see a movement in the poll, dan, as a result of the debate. >> i think we'll see som
of president obama's most loyal voting blocs in the 2008 election are struckling in the current economy. remember, september's national unemployment rate is 7.8%. breaking that down by demographics, african americans 13.4% unemployed, up from 11.3% this time four years ago. hispanics, 9.9% unemployed, up from 8% in september of 2008. and young people ages 18 to 29 a september unemployment rate of 11.8%, up from 9.8% in 2008. one analyst says young people often can't get a foot in the door. >> the economy is simply not creating enough full-time meaningful jobs at the entry level because you have so many more people competing for the jobs now that have advanced degrees or degrees and the market is tight for them. >> reporter: do the unemployment numbers mean the president could lose some support among these groups? one analyst says probably not. >> probably not going to impact it much. in the end, of course, the economy matters for any politician running for election. voters are looking for something more than just plug in some number and what comes out is a certain percentage of votes. y
't know, but what doesn't jump out is the words fiscal cliff. neither president obama nor mitt romney mentioned it at all during wednesday's debate. i was kind of amazed, christine. i was amazed to have a debate focused on the economy and not one word about how these guys would avert the fiscal cliff, ask frankly, not one question from the moderator about the most serious thing that could be facing our economy right now. christine, stay right where you are. i want to bring in cnn's chief national correspondent john king who has been a debate moderator in the past as well as the democratic u.s. senator from georgia sam nunn. he is actively working with both alan simpson and ershkin bowles to find simple, long-term solutions to the gridlock. think of this as simpson bowles 2.0. he's been highly critical over the handling of the fiscal cliff that threatens our economy. senator nunn, you have said, quote, both sides seem to have a political strategy, but their governing strategy is in doubt. those are your words. have you ever seen government so broken that lawmakers would rather take the
pointing out that the jobs numbers largely reflect an obama econom an obat has the economy still stuck in neutral. >> the policies that the president put in place actually made it worse. including the fact that obama care is causing small employers not to hire because of rising healthcare costs. >> former white house press secretary robert gibbs today also touched on the jack welch tweet. >> you wonder why institutions in this country are the perception of institutions in the country are failing because people go on tv and make stuff up. ask for the evidence and he said he had none. >> we continue to make progress. 31 consecutive months of private sector job growth. certainly we are not where we want to be. >> many analysts who combed through the unemployment data released attribute the decline to a big increase in part-time work. people looking for full-time jobs unable to find them and they are settling for part-time jobs. there were some 582,000 new part-time jobs created last month. the bureau of labor statistics categorizes the number as "part time for economic reasons." not exact
after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of london which is one square mile in the heart of london which is not even governed by the laws of eng
in recess, the first debate focused on the economy, the question of whether the obama administration intentionally misled the american people has not yet been answered. is it fair game politically and will it affect anybody vote? we continue with christine o'donnell and bill kristol and congressman forbes. are people grasping the significance of benghazi gate and paying attention to it or is the economy so paramount that it overshadows everything else? >> in virginia, a different question. not so much whether or not the administration was misleading but why we didn't provide the security that we needed for the individuals that we had there representing the united states the. secondly, it is the big concern with when they talk about how aggressive they pursued this waiting 23 days before they even get in there and get information when tv networks had the information before the united states government. but the big question we are hearing people asking across virginia is why is this an administration that is so willing to cut national defense in the united states but they won't put on

that romney ran all over obama. from a small business owner's perspective he addressed the issues we have not seen addressed offer the laugh four years. most notably, how are we going to get this economy growing again because from a small business owner's perspective, that is what is going to get them hiring and make them more successful. if the economy grows, more people are buying from them. there's more confidence, and it is just a self fulfilling prophecy. >> what we are dealing with here, four years -- apart from what president obama is saying on there, what we have seen is that small business is struggling and we are way, way at the end of the food chain. we have banks that can't fail. $700 billion going into who knows what. snail gardens in san francisco. it is harder today because of rules like dodd-frank to get money from a bank. small banks are failing. we lost 2,000 of them in the last two or three years. that's where businesses go to get the personal loan based on my personal credibility. those are gone, and that's why we need a change. >> when you listen to them debate and yo
